Founded by Jennifer Chert, the gallery opened in September 2008 in Berlin, Kreuzberg, in a former mechanic workshop. After eight years, Chert relocated to a new space in the same neighbourhood.
In 2016, Florian Lüdde joined the gallery as partner and the gallery changed its name into ChertLüdde.
The gallery’s program focuses on international emerging artists and represents two historical positions. It alternates solo exhibitions with curated group presentations. ChertLüdde explores a variety of different artistic practices, visions and media including sculpture, painting, photography, drawing, video, performance and installation-based work.
The gallery engages closely with its artists in developing projects and in working on institutional exhibitions.
ChertLüdde regularly takes part in international art fairs and dedicates a particular attention and passion to the production of artists’ books and catalogues.
In 2017, the gallery presented the first exhibition of The Mail Art Archive of Ruth Wolf-Rehfeldt and Robert Rehfeldt, a long term exhibition and publication project presenting the archive of mail art works amassed by the two German artists from beginning of the 1970s until the early 1990s. Each exhibition and publication concentrates on a letter of the alphabet, from A to Z, cataloging every item the couple received in their years of activity. The archive is available for consultation upon appointment at the gallery.
In 2019, the gallery opened BUNGALOW, a space located in the basement of ChertLüdde dedicated to young contemporary artists. The aim of BUNGALOW is to provide further emphasis on the research-based aspect of the gallery program, by inviting a new generation of artists to develop a project specific to the space and context. BUNGALOW projects occur by invitation from the gallery.
